Trails: Skookumchuck, Garfield Ridge Trail, Franconia Brook Trail, Twin Brook Trail, Frost Trail, Gale River Trail
Hike Date: 2020-07-25
 

Conditions:
Skookumchuck was in very good shape, easy to follow most of the way, some muddy spots. Garfield Ridge Trail very muddy in between the ups and downs. Upper section of Franconia Brook Trail tremendously muddy, even though water was quite low.

Trail Maintenance:
Franconia Brook Trail was difficult to follow in spots, but as long as you pay attention, it isn’t that hard to follow.

Comments:
Heed the Guide’s advice. Expect Garfield Ridge Trail to take longer than it seems.
